About This Piece

Artist’s Statement:
What does home feel like?

To me, home is big billows of warm veils, light from stars, a home that holds altars and candles, a place no one can hurt me. With this mural, I hope to create an aura so that when people look at the mural, they feel home – through color or the beauty in Guadalupe’s face, a portal to make the viewer feel safe.

I’ve been drawing Guadalupes for as long as I can remember. Seeing her image in everything, and remembering by heart how her cloak and veil folds and the patterns on her robe. How the stars turn into constellations. How her aura warms in color. To me she feels like home, a warm, safe realm of glitter and gold of sun and moon and everything in between. I wanted the largest Guadalupe I have ever made to somehow hold space for the community and watch over the neighborhood, to hold on to the culture of the people that call it home.

I painted this with house paint, puff paint, and three pounds of glitter. And spirit from her rays.
